Everything that could have went wrong for the St. Louis Cardinals did  in their 8-1 loss in game one of the World Series.  Not only are the Cardinals down 1-0 in the series, outfielder Carlos Beltran injured his ribs  crashing into the rightfield wall catching on what would have been a grand slam. Tonight,  St. Louis will look to even the series as they will head back home for games three and four and they will have one of their better pitchers on the mound.  NLCS MVP Michael Wacha has been amazing in the postseason for the Cardinals. In his three postseason starts, he is 3-0 with a 0.43 ERA. (Wacha has only allowed one run allowed). The 22-year-old rookie also has a  0.57 WHIP and a 5.50 strikeout-to-walk ratio this postseason.  Pitching for the Boston Red Sox tonight is John Lackey, who in Game three of the ALCS outpitched Detroit Tigers' pitcher Justin Verlander by throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 1-0 Boston win over the Tigers.  Lackey, like much like Red Sox Game one start...
